2017 budget: 10 committees defy Saraki’s deadline on submission of reports

Ten Senate standing committees are yet to submit their 2017 budget reports on Ministries, Departments and Agencies to the Committee on Appropriation,a development that may jeopardise early passage of this year’s budget.

This is coming five days after expiration of deadline given by the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, to the various Senate standing committees to submit reports on the various Ministries, Departments and Agencies to the Committee on Appropriation so as to conclude work on the 2017 Appropriation Bill.

Although, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Appropriation,Danjuma Goje, could not speak on the issue when approached by Vanguard, a member of the committee who preferred his name remain in secrecy disclosed that ten committee failed to turn up their reports.

He,however, declined to name those committees which could not meet the deadline.

“Mentioning the names of the committees is immaterial, I have told you that as a committee, we are yet to receive reports from ten standing committees,”he said, refusing to entertain further question.”
